The Jayhawks also have freshman Josh Jackson who should be a top five pick if they declares for the draft after this season. He is averaging 15.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists. He is also the emotional leader of the team when he’s on the floor.
The Jayhawks are an elite offensive team. They score 88 points per game and shoot 52 percent from the field. From behind the arc they shoot 41.8 percent.

UNLV Runnin Rebels
First year coach Marvin Menzies leads his very young UNLV team into another big game against the Kansas Jayhawks.
UNLV is in complete rebuild mode right now, as they had a bunch of transfers after last season. But they are getting big recruits and have 6 freshman on the roster. In a few years they should be a team to watch out for.
The Runnin Rebels have played one of the tougher schedules in college basketball this season. They have already played Oregon and Duke and now the Jayhawks come to town. These freshman are getting valuable experience for the years to come.
The Rebels are led by Jalen Poyser and Tyrell Green. They both score over 14 points a game and are crucial for the Rebels to have success.
UNLV averages 74 points a game, but expect them to try and slow down the pace against the Jayhawks. Although their name says Runnin Rebels, they don’t want to get into a running game against Kansas.
